Reflections on DevLearn’s xAPI Hyperdrive
NOVEMBER 11, 2014
Still emanating from DevLearn two weeks ago, the buzz about the Experience API is resonating. Speaking of events, ADL has a PlugFest happening in December in Orlando. It was an incredibly exciting week to see the incredible gains and growth the xAPI community has had in the last year. My former coworker, Mira Mendlovitz of W.W. That’s also not the only xAPI-focused event coming up.
xAPI Camp – DevLearn 2015 is ONE DAY AWAY
SEPTEMBER 28, 2015
The first xAPI Camp at DevLearn, the first of four events we’re putting on hosted by The eLearning Guild , is nigh upon us. Last year was the first year there was an official xAPI Track at DevLearn and, together, we are upping that ante again (…in Vegas). They don’t have a booth at DevLearn, but Nick Washburn, the Director of Riptide’s Learning Division, will be with us on Tuesday and you should definitely give him a high-five. We are so happy that Andy Johnson and Craig Wiggins will be with us on Tuesday and throughout the week at DevLearn.
DevLearn Thoughts: Is Game Based Learning Misunderstood?
NOVEMBER 13, 2012
We had a great time at DevLearn 2012 in Las Vegas. Sharon Boller introducing Knowledge Guru at DevLearn. Here are a few areas of confusion we heard at DevLearn… and our attempts to clear the air. 1. And with ADL and AICC announcing their collaboration on Tin Can API as the NEW eLearning standard, Tin Can (also called Experience API) will only become more of a standard. 3.

xAPI Shifting to 3rd Gear
AUGUST 3, 2015
We shifted out of 1st gear at DevLearn last year. Between November 2014’s xAPI Hyperdrive and the xAPI track at DevLearn 2014, we hit our stride. We had people well outside of the ADL bubble talking about real world things things they were using xAPI to accomplish. You might be surprised to find out we’re in 2nd gear. What happened at xAPI Camp Amazon? Just huge.
Anthony Altieri @aa_altieri "Analytics: What You Want to Know" #DevLearn
OCTOBER 2, 2015
These are my live blogged notes from the opening session at this year's DevLearn, hosted by the eLearning Guild and happening in Las Vegas. xAPI can be more powerful that GA, but it requires more coding and work Interesting fact: He's wearing a wearable LRS: using ADL's LRS and beacon software. Forgive any typos and incoherencies. Anthony Altieri @aa_altieri "Analytics: What You Want to Know" I got here late so my notes are partial.he seems to be talking about the difference between using Google Analytics vs. xAPI for capturing data. Google does some gross aggregates and averages.
The DevLearn 2010 Write-up #DL10
NOVEMBER 12, 2010
It took me a week to let the excitement settle from DevLearn and reflect. After learning from Brent about the kind of work that goes into planning DevLearn, how the vision translates into the event in which we participated both physically and/or virtually, my respect for Brent continues to explode. San Francisco is quite a backdrop to a learning experience like DevLearn.

Reflecting on 2011 – Making Awesome Happen
DECEMBER 30, 2011
This eventually fed into work done by Rustici Software in conjunction with ADL, now known to the world as Project Tin Can (@projecttincan). This was the work of many smart people inside and outside of ADL, sharing their best ideas because we believe there’s a different (arguably better) way to approach learning, mediated by technology. year ago, we made the case to explore it.

DevLearn 2012 (8 hours) – October 30, 2012 – Las Vegas, NV. DevLearn 2012 has some particularly interesting things popping that I’m involved with. Along with Up to All of Us and Overlap12, Megan and I are running the DevLearn Junto this year, basically disrupting the conference officially and from within (which, as you know with me, is among my favorite things to do in the world). DevLearn is going on from October 31 – November 2 in Las Vegas, NV. Related Posts: Speaking Writing #DevLearn Bound July Fourth (#JFDid) The Beard @ ASTD #TK11.
Best of the Best: Content Authoring Tools
NOVEMBER 14, 2011
The newest version adds an adaptive learning capability, which I saw first hand at DevLearn – it was extremely impressive and extremely rare in this space. To give you an example, the free version is ADL SCORM 2004 certified (many commercial paid ones are not). While traditionally best of the best are announced in December, I decided why wait. I mean it is not like something is going to change in just a few weeks for any such product. Before I get to the list, people always want to know how do I decide what constitutes the best of the best. Here are my criteria. Final Note.

Steer into the Fear
NOVEMBER 17, 2011
I’ve had a remarkable couple of weeks starting with DevLearn 2011. I’ve had the opportunity to dwell at length with my heroes in the eLearning community. The response from hundreds of attendees at DevLearn to the causes I’ve championed, namely the revolution needed in learning technologies, has been humbling and validating as it became clear that not only do so many get what I’ve been talking about with things like Activity Streams, but that the organization I’ve come to represent is truly on the path to meeting the needs of the broader community.

They all have the story element in common. Scorm dead?
